In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus (Phil 4:6-7)~~ of all of the things we needlessly worry about, one of the biggest things people worry over is what another person thinks about them. Life is too short for any of us to spend time worrying about what other people think and say about us. I would almost bet that if they had anything positive going on in their own lives they wouldn’t have time to sit around and discuss yours anyway. It always seems that the unhappiest people in the world are those individuals who get too caught up in the opinions of people who don’t even matter, instead of how they truly feel about themselves. These people are so worried about how they look in someone else’s eyes… and misery loves company so they pass their judgement on you.. and if you worry you’ll be the same old way.
Therefore, why worry yourself about other people’s opinion of you?? It’s not important. Know what God thinks of you and what HE plans for you and let that be the basis for your opinion of yourself! When you are focused on how much God loves you, regardless of anyone else, you will realize that the only person who can pull you down… is you! So never give others the power to control your self-worth, your happiness, and your positivity! God loves you, regardless of what someone else thinks of you. You don’t NEED everyone’s approval, you’ve got God’s approval! As Romans 8:31 says: If God is for us, who is against us?
